Product Description

La Règle du jeu
A film by Jean Renoir

Denigrated by the public, vilified by the critics, re-cut at the insistence of its producers, and finally banned by the French government as demoralising and unpatriotic, La Règle du jeu was a commercial disaster at the time of its original release. On the surface, a series of interlinked romantic intrigues taking place at a weekend shooting party in a country chateau, the film is in fact a study of corruption and decay within French society on the eve of the outbreak of World War II. Its reputation firmly restored, Renoir's brilliant comedy is now widely recognized as one of the greatest films ever made.

DVD extras include an absorbing documentary on the making of La Règle du jeu, directed by Pierre Oscar Lévy (1987) for the series Image par Image.

From Amazon.co.uk

Actually filmed at the end of the Second World War, La Régle du Jeu confused the public by its dark and modern undertone. Indeed Jean Renoir shows us through a tragic love triangle the acidic face of French society at the end of the 1930s. It was received at its French premiere with such hostility (the theatre was almost set on fire), that the distributors were granted the right to cut some of the then-offensives scenes. Booed by the public and mutilated by censorship, Renoir's black sheep has since won a share of greatness in the French cinematic pantheon. This prophetic movie is now studied in every film course, and celebrities such as Gérard Depardieu or director Emir Kusturica are open admirers of this rich piece of cinema. Rewarding an infinite number of viewings, one never gets bored with La Régle du Jeu's tale of a hunting party in Sologne (followed by a more intimate one at a castle) where masters and servants outwit each other in a game of black humour and cruelty, a work made all the more memorable because of the astounding performances of its remarkable actors. --David Mikanowski, Amazon.fr
